p.1 John Blackiston, Sail-maker and Rigger, No. 4, Hardy's Buildings, Ontario Street.

p.2 Opening of Navigation - It will be seen by reference to our advertising columns, that three of our noble Lake Steamers - the Eclipse, Capt. John Gordon; the Admiral, Capt. W. Gordon; and the America, Captain Kerr, are now afloat. The America came in yesterday from Rochester, but owing to the quantity of ice in the bay, could not get below the Queen's wharf - in a few days, however, we may expect to see the bay all clear, when the Royal Mail Line will commence their regular trips. [ Toronto Patriot ]

Port Hope - Navigation at this place has been interrupted for 84 days only, this winter, the Ann Jane Brown having arrived from Oswego, with seven hundred barrels of salt on the 29th Dec. last. And the America having arrived, on the 23rd instant from Toronto for Rochester; notwithstanding the short season of interrupted commerce, the arrival of the America was hailed with many signs of welcome. [Durham Advertiser]
